Peckforton and Beeston WI

Our first hall meeting after the summer break was very entertaining as we had a talk by Ian Black on Hairdressing Down the Ages.  Ian transported us from the Cavemen, Romans, Egyptians and other eras and countries up until the present day explaining how hairdressing had evolved to where it is in
now.  We learnt about different and strange substances that were used in the past as styling aids, some very unsavoury, and also how various things can affect the growth of hair.  It was an extremely interesting evening and very much enjoyed by everyone.  At our next meeting, on 5th September, Julia Smalley will speak about The Language of Flowers – Potted Social Histories, and on 3rd October we will hear about Goose Grease and Brown Paper from Kath Reynolds.  Do come and visit us at any meeting you will be very welcome.
